Last year, retail stores in the U.S. lost an estimated $86.6 billion USD to theft. According to the same report from the National Retail Federation, that number is projected to increase to over $115 billion by 2025. Loss prevention is always top of mind for retailers. However, of growing concern is organized retail crime, which is increasing at an alarming rate. Brick-and-mortar retailers, many of which are already struggling, are now facing increased exposure.
